So often our dogs are not barking to give us a hard time, they may be having a hard time or perhaps stuck in a pattern that we can change. In this episode, we explain why Dog Management is so powerful, we help you know what training to consider and a reminder that regular practice and lot of patience will get you the results you're looking for!
Canine Body Language
Our dogs are very generous and pay attention to our Body Language, they know what we are saying much better than we know what they are saying. As you take a little time to learn their language, you will be amazed at how much the communication between you will improve.
We discussed the 5F’s which are the main coping strategies commonly seen in times of stress or anxiety. Flight, Fight, Freeze, Faint and the often subtle or misunderstood Fidget or Fool Around.
We also touched on some of the potential causes of a fear response including known or often unknown pain your dog is experiencing, genetic & epigenetics, a lack of sensitive socialization, early experiences, and trauma can all have a roll to play.
